Plot Summary
New York actor Michael Dorsey (Dustin Hoffman) is a talented perfectionist who is so hard on himself and others that his agent (Sydney Pollack) can no longer find work for him. After a soap opera audition goes poorly, Michael reinvents himself as actress Dorothy Michaels and wins the part. What was supposed to be a short-lived role turns into a long-term contract, but when Michael falls for his castmate Julie (Jessica Lange), complications develop that could wreck everything.

    Dustin Hoffman is excellent in such films as Kramer vs Kramer (family drama with Meryl Streep) and early fave The Graduate(also love the late Anne Bancroft). In this film, a male tries to get work, but succeeds as a female in a soap opera. Teri Garr is exceptional, playing Michael's girlfriend.Wonderful acting by all the great stars.
